Mud Logging Services

Mud logging is a term used while in the process of creating a record of borehole by carefully testing the cutting of rock brought to the surface through drilling medium. This provides drillers and the owner’s necessary and essential information that helps drilling operation. The process of Mud Logging involves some very expensive and specialized equipment in order to get a successful results and information.

Mud Logging Services by JDIL

Jindal Drilling & Industries Limited (JDIL) forayed in the business of providing Mud Logging services in 1991 and since then is continuously providing Mud Logging services to various E&P companies including ONGC, OIL, CANORO RESOURCES etc. We manufacture and operate the Mud logging units as per the client requirements. Our advanced software and mud logging equipments have integrated facilities for complete acquisition, monitoring and recording of the Geological and drilling data during drilling oil and gas wells on continuous basis. Well trained Data Engineers/ Mud loggers / Service/Maintenance Engineers under the guidance of specialist supervisors analyze geological data for detection and analysis of hydrocarbon gases, fluoroscopic studies for the presence of oil shows and overpressure studies for formation evaluation etc.

Growing from 4 to 14 units, JDIL is the biggest MUD logging service provider in North East India, which is a key area for oil and gas exploration in the country.

JDIL currently operating 4 Nos. Mud Logging units with Oil India Limited worth US $ 1.3 million and 10 no’s unit with ONGC, commenced Nov-Dec 2013 for a period of 4 years, total value of contract US$ 4.5 million.
